Plesk 17.8: New features – try for free at Contabo

The new Plesk Onyx 17.8 is available for some time now, and maybe you are using it already. If not, you might consider to order your next (virtual) server with Plesk Onyx. In case you are still unsure if Plesk is the right administration panel for your needs, we would like to introduce some of the many advantages of the latest Plesk Onyx version:

Nginx-Caching: Significantly reduces the load-time of your websites and accelerates your server by loading pages directly from the cache.

The Advisor is the new best friend of your server and provides you with valuable tips in order to improve the security and performance of your server and your websites. This works automatically and the advisor makes suggestions and shows you which issues you need to address. All this is grouped by sections (security, SEO, performance,...)

The Repair-Kit ensures that your server is up and running, at all times. High CPU load, no more disk space available? No problem, thanks to the repair kit you can handle such issues yourself. The best thing: You do not have to be a skilled server administrator for that.

Easily manage your websites and increase the security with the WordPress Toolkit: Updates with optional restore points, password-protected acces to WordPress instances, protection from "pingback attacks", add your own plugins, themes, and much more.

The SEO-Toolkit provides valuable assistance when it comes to search engine optimization. Monitor your keywords, compare your ranking with your main competitors, and receive optimization recommendations in order to attract even more potential site visitors!

Does this convince you to try Plesk Onyx 17.8?

If your answer is "yes", then you can try it one month for free - exclusively at Contabo! This offer is available in combination with all of our virtual private servers (VPS). Just click on "Customize & Order" below the desired VPS and then select the Plesk Onyx version of your choice on the following page (in the section administration panel).
